Many have attempted it, but few have succeeded.
The legendary scene in “Dirty Dancing” where Jennifer Grey’s character runs across the dance floor into Patrick Swayze’s open arms. He lifts her effortlessly into the air from her stomach as the song “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” plays in the background.
Other people have recreated. For example, in the film “Crazy, Stupid, Love” Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling pull off the move effortlessly.
Nina Dobrev and Shaun White Take on Scene
The newest to try are celebrity couple Shaun White and Nina Dobrev.
The couple was ringing in the New Year when they decided to give the dance a try. It ends with the couple on the ground laughing after White lost his balance and fell. Luckily, White helped break her fall with his own body.
She captioned the photo by saying one was “how she thought 2020 would go” while the other image was “how it actually went.” The first image is of her and White dressed up for New Year’s Eve.
Nina Dobrev and White were spending some time away in Montana. During their trip they did everything from dogsledding to snowboarding. In another post, Dobrev is seen standing in the middle of a photo while White is midjump on his snowboard.
He wrote, “[Nina] get out of my shot.”
According to US Magazine, the couple was first photographed together on a bike ride in Malibu. They then made the relationship official on Instagram in May 2020. They were also living together during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Before White, Dobrev dated Ian Somerhalder, who starred in “The Vampire Diaries” with her. She also dated Austin Stowell and Glen Powell. White dated rock singer Sarah Barthel from 2014 to 2019.
If the cute “Dirty Dancing” scene is any indication, the pair appear to be getting pretty close.
